Smorgon Steel has introduced new a system from Mobicon Systems P/L to eliminate working from heights issue and to reduce congestion on site. The Mobicon picks up transi flats and moves them into the production facility and under the gantry cranes, which makes up the order on to the transi flat. The Mobicon picks the laden transi flat up and transports it back into the storage yard for securing or despatch, or into storage rows waiting for the next component of the order.
The 33 Tonne capacity Mobicon is designed to handle any length container, from 16 foot through to 52 foot. It lifts the load from the bottom container castings which allows the machine to handle flat beds, tank containers and curtain sided containers. The overall height of the Mobicon is very low allowing it to access through most roller shutter doors. The "Two Tower" design provides the flexibility to operate on sloping or uneven surfaces. Compacted gravel and bitumen yards are also suitable for the Mobicon.
